Could not agree more, the few times I have been to Ireland I have experienced the nicest hospitality and people. You'll never, never know, if you never never go

If you are visiting Ireland, excluding common sense items i.e. lifejackets, flares, etc., would suggest you bring a copy of your marine insurance policy, VHF certificate/license, RYA Course Certificates (Level 1, 2 Powerboating, Day Skipper etc.), and ID. You may be stopped by Customs and Excise or Fisheries Protection if you happen to be observed behaving in a suspicious manner !

If you are planning a trip to the south coast (Cork) email me, perhaps I can advise on points of interest worth visiting.

Ireland

I agree wholeheartedly with DM and Charles. The nicest, frendliest folk you could hope to meet.

It's just a puzzle to me why the bu**ers fight each other.

Hi Kram

Thats a interesting point, the ICC/Powerboat Level 1/2, had boats for over 20 years, yachts, power boats, RIB's,many long trips, hundreds of hours as skipper etc but never got any formal qualifications.

If i need a ICC looks like I am going to have to get some soon

Dave(Wavelength) I assume you can help here
Will have to have a chat with you if you can.

I assume that the powerboat level 2 is the minumum qualification to get a ICC?.

Regards Gary

ICC/Level 2

Gary,
The RYA National Powerboat certificate (Level 2) is probably the best way for you to go about getting the ICC for power.
The majority of my pupils apply for the ICC straight after gaining the qualification. I give them an ICC form with their Level 2 log books and certificate at the end of the course and help them to fill it in there and then.
I am finding quite a few customers are having to get the Level 2 to comply with insurance requirements.
It is possible to do an ICC direct assessment without doing any other course but you might as well do the Level 2 and then get the ICC without any other test or assessments and end up with 2 certificates.
On the back of the ICC form there is a list of acceptable evidence of competence for botht the power and sail ICC's. These range from the Level 2 powerboat, helmsman's cert, day/coastal skipper and yachtmaster, local authority boatman's licence etc.

if you need any more help please let me know.

Been doing some research...

Requirements for sailing abroad (France)


Ships Documents


Ship’s Radio Licence International Radio Regulations say that each vessel owned or operated by a UK Citizen or UK Registered, which has a radio onboard, must have a valid Ships Radio Licence.

Marine Insurance You must carry you marine insurance cover note with you as many European countries will ask for evidence of insurance cover. It is important to check the territorial limits of your cover before undertaking any trip, as you may need to extend the cruising limits. Some countries also require a translation of the cover note which your insurance broker should be able to provide.

Proof of VAT paid Proof of VAT paid may be required by some EU custom officials.

Registration The vessel must be registered on either Part I or Part III (SSR) of the register of British Shipping and have on board the original registration document, photocopies are not acceptable.

Please remember that The Merchant Shipping Acts state that all vessels must wear their proper national colours when entering or leaving a foreign port. Even if the Red Ensign is not being worn, it should be carried on board at all times. When in foreign ports it is also customary to fly the maritime flag of the country being visited. A courtesy Ensign is a smaller version of a normal Ensign. It should be flown in the second most senior position on board.

Personal Documents

ICC Skippers of British registered boats do not require an International Certificate of Competence (ICC) when cruising in French coastal waters. However, if you are planning on going inland then you must have your ICC with your CEVNI inland endorsement.

Passport Every crew member on board requires a passport.

VHF Operators Cert. If you have a radio and accompanying ships licence one crew member must have a valid VHF Maritime Operators Certificate.

Got a little bored today (Sources: RYA and various other sites)

Thanks Daniel thats great,

That is just what I have been looking for, guess you just a better cyber surffer the me

I have a few things to do now, need to sort our SSR and even though I dont need it think I will try and sort out a ICC in case other countries need it
(Excuse to spend more time on the boat), "Sorry darling wife, of course I dont want to go but the EU says I must have a ICC and spending lots of time afloat is the only way to get it"
Think I will get away with that one ??.

Anyway thanks everyone, didnt want to fall foul on our first abroard.

Regards Gary

Hi Gary
No probs, we'll sort it when you eventually (!) arrive in port. Level 2 coastal will give you the ICC for free if you join the RYA or around £30 if you're not. Away for 7 days from midweek, I'll message you when I get back. Looked at my ICC this week cos I need it in a hurry and found it had expired. Sent the form wednesday, ICC back here today Friday. It did need a phone call before I sent it but still bloody efficient!

ICC
a word of warning. I was phoned last year by the rya cos a brit had phoned them from spain to say he had been arrested and had his boat impounded. They let him out but would not let him have his boat back until he produced his ICC. The reason the rya had phoned was cos he said he had done a course with us. His story to the spanish police was that they had come alongside so hard they had washed his paperwork over the side (oh yeah-of course they did! I'd arrest him with a story like that). The RYA would not issue the ICC without sight of his level 2 without my OK on it. Of all the people I have ever had on a course I would have put money on it being him cos he was that sort of person. But the moral of the story is always take the bits of paper - and dont leave them laying on the deck where a spanish copper can swill them overboard!
